Financial services businesses face unprecedented market challenges. Disruption from Fintech firms, increased local and international regulation, geo- political upheavals and wavering customer loyalty. The need to fully understand the market, to innovate, to reduce costs and be more competitive has never been greater, and this is where AI can help.
According to one fintech research company, by 2030 the financial services sector could reduce operational costs using AI, by as much as 22%. It suggests that will equate to around $1 trillion in efficiencies. So, from a purely operational point of view, doing nothing is not really an option for companies that want to remain competitive.
Today, financial services firms across the board need to rejuvenate customer experience to protect against client attrition, and protect those customers against risk. While data analysis and visualization are key to making sense of data, the fundamental challenge for all businesses is building an infrastructure capable of collecting and processing data from a variety of sources.
